Stylar Caps are a pair of dorsal-ventral apical flat pieces, with distal villosities, and applied to each other; the dorsal one is short, horseshoe shaped while ventral part is much longer extending as a sword. This structure was desribed and named for the first time by Kury (2012)[1] and may be homologous to those found in other cranaids like Ventrifurca, Phareicranaus, Heterocranaus or Stygnicranaus.
